Well Johndon Its not that I haven’t had the urge just haven’t had time. All projects thus far have been painted no need for dovetails for the strength factor or the aesthetics. This lady’s father was a furniture maker, I saw several of his pieces. I would never attempt drawers with anything less than a dovetail for function (pride). She knows I’m not an old pro (friend of moms) but she likes the other stuff I’ve made so ask if I would take this on. I have a dovetail jig and ordered a guide bushing today. I think she wants to see how far I will go to make it a quality piece, potentially a huge door opener to other work. hand cut is certainly in my future. Thanks for the advice.
